Also known as a Birthday Cake for Breakfast. Chocolate Chocolate makes for the best breakfast in the world. And muffins!

Chocolate Brownie Pancakes

Yesterday was my birthday and all I wanted was an excuse to eat super fluffy chocolate brownie cake for breakfast without cooking time, drizzled with a little more chocolate sauce. I mean, who wouldn’t want it?

Chocolate Brownie Pancakes

The best part of them is that they provide a “eat while cooking” (if you’re something like me) type of situation before giving them a chance to hit the plates.

And to make them healthy — I served them with fresh berries.

  1. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, sugar (or sweetener), baking powder (and baking soda if using) and salt together in a mixing bowl. Pour in the butter (or oil), vanilla and milk. Whisk until combined. Fold through chocolate chips.
  2. Heat a nonstick pan over low-medium heat with cooking oil spray. Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake into the pan and cook until the surface starts to bubble and the bottom is set. Flip and cook until done. Repeat with remaining batter.


  1. Melt the chocolate in a microwave or over stove top (use your preferred method). Stir with a fork until lump free and evenly melted. Add the milk and whisk until smooth, combined and a creamy sauce has formed.

    Hi, the Chocolate Brownie Pancakes article it is
    well written and has helped me a lot. WINGED MOLY MAMA! These babies look incredibly dope! I almost licked the dengue screen! I was inspired and motivated to take the kitchen and try it asap! I’m not sure if I should thank you or run to the hills. Thank you!This decadent chocolate cake batter pancake is not guilty, low-fat and vegan and contains only 170 calories for the entire recipe. It can also be made gluten free!
    According to the gummy texture that people complain about, when I made the recipe for the first time with whole wheat flour, I did not have this topic, but this time I made it with multi-purpose flour and they were very gummy. Next time I will stick with whole wheat and probably give apple sauce for an egg white. In the WW application, the scores are much less with whole wheat flour.

    I base my score on my first try in the recipe, which is very good.
